Preparation for “The Case for Junior Developers”

On Thursday, June 26th I’ll be giving my second-ever conference talk at Open Source Bridge! The talk is called “The Case for Junior Developers,” and is meant to explore when and where it makes business sense to hire junior developers, some strategies for overcoming common obstacles to hiring juniors, and how to support juniors in a sustainable way for both them and your business.

Here’s where I need your help! I need to hear from you how companies engage (or don’t) with junior developers, and why. Please take a few minutes and let me know by filling out the form below. Thanks!
